How can you tell if your tie rod ends are in need of replacement?

Another Q:
Any reputable vendors on Ebay that I should go with?

TheDesertOutlaw Resurrecting a thread -

Q: My Driver's side front tire wants to hop when the passenger-side front tire hits a good bump in the road above 40 mph. Would I replace the drivers' side ball joints (assuming that the ball joints may be worn, loose)? How difficult are ball joints to change out?

x2.

NAPA Premium Lifetime Warranty ball joints are Dana/Spicer. That ECGS price above is more than $100 less than what I paid for my NAPA's....

Imped You can get Spicers for $50 a side all day from the vendors on eBay. Even with my employee pricing @ O'Reilly (work a few nights a week for Jeep fund/discounts) I can hardly beat that. And take it from someone who sells them and has run both.....Moog ball joints don't hold a candle to Spicer ball joints.
